This is not appropriate, please do not do this.

We do not refer to commit log messages from the source code. Many
people have the sources via some other means (tarball, distribution
source package, etc.) and won't have any idea where to get this
information.

Also, you don't need to single me out personally. This is an
implication of the structure of the code that I've merely explained to
you, it's not some rule I've personally decided upon.

Thanks.
